The Art Of ‘Ultraviolence’: 9 Promo Pics For Lana Del Rey’s New LP

With the June 17 release of Lana Del Rey‘s much-hyped Ultraviolence edging ever closer, now is as good a time as any to reflect on the LP’s stunning visual element. The 27-year-old has completely reinvented herself yet again. Gone is the cloying glamour of Born To Die. Instead, the queen of sadcore opts for a more organic look, which is reflected in her still dark and mysterious promo pics.

The common thread between the eras is the distinct retro feel. While the “Young & Beautiful” diva channelled the ’50s on her debut LP, she now evokes the seedy ’70s with her new style and music. Get in the mood for what promises to be one of the best albums of 2014 by perusing Lana’s subtle but vaguely ominous Ultraviolence photos up top.
